Supreme Court DecisionsUnjust enrichment can be proved -SC of United Kingdom

November 28, 20150

Recently Supreme Court of United Kingdom held that

Unjust enrichment can be proved by establishing a sufficient nexus between the loss and the benefit so received 

Deciding on an appeal in a case concerning unjust enrichment and subrogation, the Court with the majority of 4:1 held that the appellant was enriched as she received the freehold of the property free of any charge, instead of receiving it subject to a charge to secure her parents’ indebtedness to the Bank (a “Charge”) and her enrichment was at the expense of the bank. [Bank of Cyprus UK Limited v Menelaou, (2015) UKSC 66, decided on 4.11.2015]
